Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount missed last weeks game against the New Orleans Saints and is not expected to play against the Chicago Bears in London today. Blount injured his knee in the blow out loss to the San Francisco 49ers, which has been reported as a Grade II MCL sprain. Blount is not expected back until after the Bucs Week 8 bye week.
In Blount's place, Earnest Graham will once again shoulder the bulk of the carries. Graham carried the load last week against the Saints to the tune of 109 yards on just 17 carries, including 22 receiving yards out of the backfield. Graham has always been used in 3rd down situations and passing downs, but he's proven to be a good spot starter when asked.
